Do keygens work for anything
Do keygens work for anything

Ok here's the scoop so far. I forgot to run Hijackthis last night and if I had I would have noticed a little sleeper bugger that seems to be plaguing ppl in Microsoft Office, redirector I did go to the site and try downloading again got the same, but after I'm done with this adventure and not being redirected I'll try again. My apologies if I made a hasty comment/statement. just keepin' in real.

OK, to actually answer the question: "What is found by Malwarebytes?": Malwarebytes flags anything that has the word patch either in it's name or code or folder name. Let's break down the name: Risky: involving the possibility of something bad or unpleasant happening. involving risk, Tool: something that helps to get or achieve something, does a job or activity. CK: Might refer to the company or group that made the patch, but really not positive on that one.
Now, let's ask ourselves, why might Malwarebytes find this code to be malware/spyware? Hmm, Do you really believe that these large consortiums of people/programmers out there, such as the 'Crude Team', are just spending hours of time to create these patches and keygens and give them away through torrents out of the kindness of their hearts? Obviously, their making money on this, and since you can download most of these for free through various torrent groups, then one must ask how are they making money on these? One example would be, create a patch that once ran, stay running till the computer is restarted, or just keeps running all the time, hidden within another program, that records all keystrokes entered into your computer, ie: Credit Card numbers, with expiration dates and Back of Card codes. Send them over the internet intermittently while the computer is idle, or in small enough increments to avoid being noticed. Wham, Bam, Thank you Ma'am, You just got $5000 credit card slam. How about if it just gets your log-in information for websites such as Netspend, Paypal, Netflix, etc. Starting to get the picture anyone? You got a $150 package for free, yes, and down the road, maybe not in the next day or so, but sometime down the road, all of a sudden, you find out someone opened a credit card in your name, ran it up to $10,000, and now, it's going to take you a heck of a lot of money to get that cleared from your records.
That all being said, you might want to rethink this thing.
Remember, it never pays to covet your neighbors property. What does that mean? It means, you want what your neighbor has, but don't feel you should have to pay to have it, even though they did, or they created it and feel that is what is worth. Finally, if the government gets their way, and they probably will on this, anyone that has even downloaded these patches, key generators, or pirated software, will be facing fines that are at least 5 times the amount of the actual cost of the software, and quite/most likely prison time.

WHAT A MORON. IT'S JUST A KEYGEN NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. Quit posting noob.

You be the moron, noob. It is a keygen, it is theft and it is a security risk on your computer. christopher put it quite well and did so politely. Unlike an idiot claiming to be tired of himself.
Wow. I laughed. The OP did ask: So does anybody know what is.
And no one actually gave an answer. They just spewed out a 'I have no idea, remove it anyway' generic response.
It's a false positive telling you that there isn't anything actually wrong with the file but it's associated with a 'bad thing'. ie pirating. So it is bad anyway. Golf claps to the posters here that just spew.

anyone else in this boat that wishes to use keyfinders maker etc can easily download sandboxie for free install it and open these 'Questionable Source tools" safely by right clicking on them and opening in sandbox. it's like a little virtual sandbox that keeps things from infecting your system. restrict the use of virus's and malware by working smart not working hard.

I agree with Jmorphett. is safe. Yes, it is a Office 2010 activator, but it's quite safe. It has been submitted through Virustotal and they found it to be safe. The only thing this service does is provide a service that acts as a license server.
